Katy Perry And Orlando Bloom’s Love Story Is Both Weird And Wonderful

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have been off and on for a while now, but it seems like they’re back on—and pretty serious.

The couple made their red carpet debut Wednesday at the Gala for the Global Ocean at the Opera of Monte-Carlo in Monaco, and they looked thrilled to be together. Apparently they’re pretty happy away from the cameras too.

“Orlando is doing well. He is still very happy with Katy. This has been an amazing year for their relationship. It was like they needed to split and get back together again to get to this point,” a source told People. “Orlando is very excited about his life with Katy. It definitely seems like they could have a future together.”

It’s been a long and interesting road for them to get to this point (uh, remember Orlando’s public full-frontal nudity?). And it all started back in 2016…

Apparently Orlando was the one who made the first move. According to People, Orlando made a beeline for Katy at a Golden Globes afterparty where they were spotted talking for about 30 minutes. Katy was even seen giving Orlando some of her drink.

It looks like things heated up pretty quickly. The two were spotted multiple places later that month, including at the L.A. play The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey.

The two were spotted at an Adele concert and The Daily Mail reported that Orlando planted a kiss on Katy’s lips at one point.

“They seemed to just be enjoying the show as they sung and danced along with some of their other friends,” a source told the Daily Mail.

…But not together. Still, eagle-eyed fans noticed that they wore matching Tamagotchis on their outfits as part of the exhibit’s “Fashion in an Age of Technology” theme.

Katy hilariously posted a photo of the two of them lounging on the steps of a mansion with the caption, “We cannes’t.” It’s hard to make out the guy in the photo, but it seems to be Orlando.

Paparazzi captured shots of Katy and Orlando on a paddleboard adventure in Italy but…Orlando was only wearing a hat. Katy seemed pretty nonchalant about the whole thing, sipping a beer as he paddled them along.

Around the same time, a source told People that Orlando wanted to have children with Katy. “He would love to settle down with Katy and have more kids,” the source said. “He hasn’t been this serious about a girl since [ex-wife] Miranda [Kerr].”

Both of their publicists released a statement that said the following, per People: “Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.”

Before their breakup announcement, they were last spotted together at the Vanity Fair Oscars party.

The two were seen getting cozy at L.A.’s Staples Center during an Ed Sheeran concert. An eyewitness told ET that “Orlando put his arm around Katy’s waist several times, and at one point, she sat on his lap.”


Katy and Orlando were spotted together in the Maldives. Soon after, a source told The Sun that they were on again. “Katy wants to make things work this time around. She tried, but she couldn’t cut him off,” the source said. “She cares too much about him. This time, they’re keeping things low key–but they’re back together.”

Katy told ET that she’s “spoken for” and “very happy” although she didn’t mention Orlando’s name. She later shared a photo on Instagram of herself and Orlando meeting the Pope together.

“Orlando and Katy are great. They are dating exclusively again and things seem more serious,” a source told People at the time. “They are both excited about it and don’t want to hide, but at the same time they are trying to keep privacy as well.”

After Orlando shared a photo to promote his new film on Instagram, Katy commented: “I need a season pass for that ass.” Apparently she meant to slide into his DMs with that one, because she promptly wrote: “Oops I meant to send that to you privately.” But one thing is for sure: It made their romance VERY public.

Katy shared two videos of Orlando on Instagram stories. In one, he’s dressed up in a tux and does a little booty shake at Katy’s request. She added a sticker to the clip that said “Lemme touch ur butt” inside a pink heart and set the whole thing to “Baby Got Back.”

She also shared another video of him, joking that he looked like a mint chocolate chip.

If that’s not love, I don’t know what is!
